Here's a song from what I feel is the best Grover Washington Jr effort, Reed Seed (1978).

Reed Seed is of "desert island album" quality, IMHO. I went with Santa Cruzin' here, but could have picked any song.

Deodato is a Brazilian composer and keyboard player.

On Deodato 2, he's accompanied by Billy Cobham, Ron Carter, Stanley Clarke, and Hubert Laws, as well as John Tropea on guitar, and others on the horn section.

Enjoy.

What an amazing song and voice. As an added bonus, that's Jean Alesi driving Dianne Reeves around the park. He drove F1 in the 90's for Tyrell, Ferrari, Benetton and other. He was on Ferrari when they stunk and got his only win for them on his birthday in Canada.

I live in a town of 15,000 about two hours south of Indy, but we have this arts program that brings in amazing artists for about 8-10 concerts a years. Some in the main hall an dsome in their backstage series, which is about 50 folding chairs set up on the stage with the artist. It always stuns me that there are all of these people making innovative interesting music that will struggle for exposure. KJ came to the backstage in 2010. She was incredible. Really good original stuff and covers that constantly surprised me in their interpretation. Fell in love. wuv

Starting with their first album, Santana (the band) consistently incorportated jazz elements into some of their songs.

Treat is a good example - it'a a song with a jazz piano figure that has a salsa rhythm added to it, and then it gets Carlos's inventive guitar work interwoven throughout.

The studio version is wonderful.






The live version takes the song to another level.
